This wedding from an ELD favorite, Kristen Weaver Photography, is the perfect way to end our week! With a couple who’s been inseparable since their first meeting eight years ago, a gorgeous setting, an even more gorgeous lace dress, and all the makings of a classic, romantic wedding, you’ll be skipping into your weekend with a full heart!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I would have to say my mom. She took care of all the less exciting items that I did not want to do so that I could concentrate on the “fun” details! Since we did not use a wedding planner we were a little nervous about making sure that all the necessary preparations were covered but my mom bought several bridal books which proved to be very helpful in all stages of the pre-wedding process. Even though my mom does not live in the same city, thanks to the internet and many phone calls, we were able to plan the perfect wedding.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
Do your homework and do not be afraid to ask questions. Be sure to pick a good photographer. I chose Kristen Weaver. Thanks to her and her incredible photos, Matt and I will always have a beautiful album of pictures that remind us of every moment of our special day.
Did any of your vendors do anything special for you before, on, or after your wedding day that you would like to share?
Casa Feliz and its entire staff were amazing. The wedding was supposed to be an outdoor affair but at the last minute a light drizzle appeared. Effortlessly and without any disruption to the guests, our outdoor wedding quickly became an intimate indoor wedding with the main room ablaze with candle light and flowers. The floral arrangements by Greenery Productions were beautiful and tied everything together; they brought tears to my eyes. People are still talking about the feast that Arthur’s Catering provided for the reception. From the delicious hors d’oeuvres to the various main dishes, there was something to please everyone. Imagine our surprise when at the end of the night we were handed a big box of food to enjoy for several days to come.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Ummm…..everything. Looking back I would not change a thing.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Relax and enjoy every minute. It all goes by so quickly.
Don’t you love Michelle’s description of the intimate setting awaiting them after they were forced to move inside? Proof that your back up plan may just end up being the perfect one. Thanks for sharing your day with us, Michelle. And a big thank you to Kristen Weaver Photography for showing off these lovely photos!
